DARIO ARGENTO'S Masterpiece Of Terror
Uncut, Uncensored And Newly Remastered!
When beautiful police detective Anna Manni follows the bloody trail of a sophisticated serial murderer/rapist through the streets of Italy, the young woman falls victim to the bizarre "Stendhal Syndrome" a hallucinatory phenomenon which causes her to lose her mind and memory in the presence of powerful works of art. Trapped in this twilight realm, Anna plunges deeper and deeper into sexual psychosis, until she comes to know the killer's madness more intimately than she ever imagined.
Horror maestro Dario Argento (SUSPIRIA, OPERA) reaches new heights of florid fantasy and Grand Guignol with this warped work of art starring Maxim Magazine's "Sexiest Woman in the World" Asia Argento (LAND OF THE DEAD, XXX), Thomas Kretschmann (DRACULA 3D, KING KONG) and Marco Leonardi (FROM DUSK TILL DAWN 3, CINEMA PARADISO). Previously edited outside of Italy, Blue Underground proudly presents THE STENDHAL SYNDROME in a gorgeous new 2K restoration from the original camera negative and bursting with brand-new Extras exclusive to this release!

Overall I would really only recommend this film for Argento fans, who have yet to see it. If you interested in checking out Argento films for the first time, don't start here.
The Blue Underground Blu Ray video and audio quality are great.
A brilliant film, with one of the best performances by Asia Argento ever. A fantastic treatment by VU. But without Troma's dvd-premiere of this film you are certainly not complete!! If you have to choose, get that one.
